MAYA WEUG

BORN IN SPAIN WITH A DUTCH FATHER AND BELGIUM MOTHER

FERRARI DRIVER ACADEMY

I started karting at Oliva Karting (on the spanish Costa Blanca) where I grew up as a kid. When I was seven years old me and my brother Lucas got a second hand Birel kart with a 85cc Cadet engine for christmas. Now seven years later it is amazing to be an Official Factory Team Driver for BirelArt.

It was a dream come true for me in december 2018 when I was selected for the “Richard Mille Young Talent Academy” and a very important step in my racing career. This amazing program which is backed by the FIA Women in Motorsport, All Road Management and Birel Art will allow me to race in the best possible conditions in the International OK season!

Spanish championship, VICE CHAMPION!

My first important races were the Formula de Campeones (in Valencia) and the Spanish championship that I started racing in with Alejandro Vives, from karting Oliva. In 2014 I started winning races and became third in the Formula Campeones championship and had a podium in the Spanish championship. The next year in 2015 I was the favorite to win the Spanish championship, but got taken out in the pre-final of the last round at Motorland. Fighting back from last to p4 secured the Vice-championship and the CEPSA trophy.

Copa de Campeones, CHAMPION!

At the Copa the Campeones at the end of 2015 we got our “revenge” and became the first female champion of the prestigious trophy, finishing a very successful karting season.

WSK FINAL CUP, CHAMPION!

In 2016 Luis Pescador and Peppo Morcia gave me the opportunity to start racing in the WSK in the mini 60 class for their team Magik. Later that year we joined the TOP Kart factory and had a very successful year. With a lot of highlights like p4 at the European X30 challenge, A p4 at the WSK night edition, p4 and a few more top 10 finishes in the Italian championship and becoming WSK Final Cup champion was the amazing Crown to my first international season.
